This brief summary suggests that the window for optimal socialization of puppies may be much shorter and close much earlier than previously thought.

Why Do So Many Dogs Suffer from Fear Problems? Are we socialising our puppies in the right way?

n the latest research it is suggested that the socialisation period is much shorter than previously assumed and may end at 7-8 weeks with the most important period being the 3 to 5 week. The second point is that new insights in brain development have important implications for for example, the moment and manner in which we expose dogs to stimuli and the moment we choose to home them.
